Shahrah-e-Quaideen Flyover

According to Dawn, the Nazim announced yesterday that the Shahrah-e-Quaideen flyover will be inaugurated on May 20th. Hopefully, that should help ease the flow of traffic at the SMCHS roundabout and make it easier to get to DHA. Which reminds me, has anyone noticed that there’s been a marked increase of traffic personnel at various intersections in the past two days? Who’s the big wig in town these days?

    Just this sunday, Cowasjee was pointing to the faults in the Clifton Underpass design. According to him the initial design had an underpass and an overpass so that the traffic can also turn right at the intersection. But the top brass wanted something cheaper so they removed the overpass. I don’t know whether they will alter the clifton cross or not, but just today I saw the design of another overpass this time at Sohrab Goth, and the city nazim made sure that the overpass is there in it.

    I hope someone at KPT, who is the “sponsor” of the Clifton underpass reads Sunday’s dawn and looks into Cowasjee’s suggestions.

    There was this news two days back in the Dawn that either the DIG or I think it was the IG Sindh said something like – ‘In order to achieve a smoothe flow of traffice at S-e-F, there would be 500 cops stationed throughout the length and breadth of the road.

    Being an optimistic, I am noticing some improvement – albeit a minor change in the traffice flow. Hopefully things may look quite better in the near future – Ameen.

    Press does has its power. After that Cowasjee article, Sindh Governor called a meeting regarding the Clifton underpass and asked for a new design which does away with the fautls of the current design. It will probably mean a little delay but hey, if the end result comes out good, then everything should be AOK.
